Here it is…time for another Menu Monday. It’s Valentine’s Day this week so we will have a couple of special dinners AND a night at our favorite hotel!

Meatless Monday – I have part of a head of cabbage, some potatoes and carrots on hand, all of which need to be used soon. What better way to use up veggies than in a steaming pot of yummy soup?
- cabbage, potato and carrot soup
- Homemade Cheddar Biscuits
We are going to the city for an early Valentine’s Day celebration.
I’m not sure what time we will return from the city so I’ve planned an easy dinner. I’ll season the chicken breasts, bake until almost done, baste with sweet and sour sauce and finish cooking. I’ll cook the rice in my rice cooker and steam a bag of frozen veggies in the microwave. Easy!
- sweet and sour chicken
- Asian style vegetables
I’ve been researching dietary suggestions for my autoimmune disease and cold water fish is highly recommended. David isn’t a huge fan of fish but we’ll have some chicken leftover from Wednesday for him. And any meal with homemade mashed potatoes is a hit around here.
- mashed potatoes
- green beans
I was going to cook a special Valentine’s Day meal for us at home but David reminded me that the Elks Lodge (we are members) is doing a prime rib dinner. We’ll attend that and I’ll do a fancy dinner at home another night.
Since we’ll have had a couple of heavy dinners this week I think we’ll have big salads topped with grated sharp cheddar, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes and croutons.
We’ll eat out after church.
